Awesome, I used 1 TBLSP rice vinegar to replace 1/2 of the water, cut the cilantro back to 2 TBLSP and used almonds instead of peanuts (food allergy). I served it with the pan roasted scallops with sesame sauce.....will serve again, and again!!

The flavor didn't work at all to my taste. I used broccoli slaw instead of cabbage slaw, so that might have contributed. I had to add soy sauce and rice vinegar just to make it palatable.
